Tensions between upstate state senators and the mayor of New York City were highlighted during a budget hearing on aid to local governments in Albany when lawmakers questioned the mayor for more than five hours.

With just three weeks left in the legislative session, demonstrations and efforts to put the bill on the Senate floor continue.
